EVENT DATE Nov 14, 2014
Jon's temporary citizenship expires in 2015 and he has been wanting to apply for permanent residency for a long time. Unfortunately, due to me being out of work much longer than anticipated, he has had to put off his application due to the high fees involved. The total amount of the process comes to $680. If you're like me, sometimes you just have no clue what to get someone for their birthday and while I'm generally opposed to asking for money as a gift, I think this is a really great "present" that we can all chip in on to help Jon become 'one of us'. Now if only there was a way I could make him give up spotted dick, mushy peas, and something called toad-in-the-hole! Let's face it, this country would be a lot better off with more people like him in it! I'm a little reluctant to let someone so into socialized healthcare have voting privileges, but I think his huge heart, positivity, and generosity are a fair price to pay for his leftist politics!
I know some of you are in similar financial situations as us, so please don't feel obligated to donate, but any little amount will be appreciated. Then those of you who have donated are welcome to join us for dinner on or near his birthday where we can surprise him with this gift! Yes, this IS a surprise, so please don't spoil it by saying anything to him! :) I will be sure to let him know who all chipped in on this gift on his actual birthday and I will make up the difference for anything not donated by the rest of his friends. Jon's official birthday is November 14th, so if you would like to donate, please do so by then! I will probably send out 1 or 2 reminder emails as the date gets closer as well as plans for the impending dinner celebration. And just remember, if you don't chip in, he'll probably be deported and I'll have to go along with him and then....well, now that I think about it many of you might be happier if that were to happen! So...nevermind! Please let me know if you have any questions! Here is the link to go to to donate to this great cause!
